Personal profile

Biography

I am a dietitian registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) following successful completion of BSc Dietetics from Plymouth University. I worked as a graduate dietitian at the Royal Derby Hospital covering a number of specialities including elderly, respiratory, cardiology, coronary care, and trauma. I then went to work at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust working in stroke at Charring Cross and renal at Hammersmith Hospital.

I have also completed MSc Biomedical Science specialising in clinical biochemistry where my final project investigated the effects of α-tocopherol on ischaemia/reperfusion injury in isolated rat hearts.   

Research Interests

My interests include:

  • nutritional prevention and management of pathophysiology
  • how nutrition may be used to enhance the -omics disciplines especially metabolomics
  • maternal nutritional health and neonatal development
  • the provision of nutrition and fluids in palliative and end-of-life care, and the decision making process involved in this provision
  • public health nutrition including politcal, legal, and ethical aspects
